RuntownDouglas Jack Agu popularly known by his stage name Runtown has proven that he is not just a one -hit wonder like so many artistes in his time. His chart topping hit Gallardo featuring Davido got him an award for Best Collaboration of The Year 2014 at the NEA awards which held in New York.  He has also released other hit songs including Domot, Party like it’s 1980 to name a few.

Unlike his peers who contributed to this issue, toeing the cautious line, Runtown threw caution onto the wind, reeling out what he believes it is the situation. Call him a rebel or whatever. Runtown believes they, musicians of this era are far better than musicians of old.

“We’re better than those people, we are fresher. I think then, they had more lyrical content but their sound production was poor. Past musicians didn’t dwell on generic sounds and generic names; we had a lot of great songs especially from the 80s. They’re the ones that inspired us, people like Fela, not just their music but their lifestyle too. Fela is a human activist so even if you’re not a musician, you learn a lot of stuff from Fela.
